The Flagler Bridge in 2010.

This update from the Florida Department of Transporation:

Flagler Memorial Bridge will close in both directions, around-the-clock from 10 p.m. Friday, June 3 until 6 a.m. Monday, June 6 while workers complete building a temporary eastbound lane between Olive Avenue and Flagler Drive and shift eastbound traffic onto this temporary lane in time to reopen on Monday morning.

Cars will detour to the Royal Park Bridge. Pedestrians and bicyclists will also be diverted to the Royal Park Bridge.

Currently, eastbound traffic accesses the Flagler Memorial Bridge via the Flagler Drive Flyover. Once traffic is shifted, eastbound drivers will cross Flagler Drive and use the westbound exit ramp to get onto the bridge. There will be one eastbound and one westbound lane on this ramp. This shift will allow the contractor to remove the Flagler Drive Flyover and build the “at-grade” intersection for the replacement bridge. Traffic will remain this way until fall 2016, when the replacement bridge is expected to open four lanes of traffic (two lanes in each direction).
